I stumbled upon this plant in a plant nursery in 2019 and decided to buy it although I knew nothing about it. I was not disappointed. It has grown extremely well, the leaves are very decorative and the flower panicles are very unique with small, dark purple spikelets. Optimum conditions are sun or partial shade in well drained, slightly acidic, moist soil, but it can tolerate most soil types.
'Aureum' is a variety of American millet with chartreuse foliage. The foliage is very decorative and the flower panicles are as well, so you could say that it has the complete package. I grew this plant from seed many years ago. It started out very slowly and for the first few years it seemed that it would grow very much. Then it really took off and has grown well and flowered every year. It even self-seeds moderately. It grows in sun or partial shade in well drained, moist soil.
'Solar Flare' is a low growing variety of greater wood-rush with chartreuse foliage. It flowers in early summer, brown flowers. I grew it from seed and planted out the first plant in the fall of 2019. That plant survived the winter and grew well the summer of 2020. It tolerates partial shade and grows best in well-drained, moist soil.
